Two drink-drivers who drove while banned are paying the price today after each being given 12 weeks in jail.

George Bodorin, of Crescent Road, Ipswich, was nearly three times the legal alcohol limit when he was caught in Little Stonham.

The 25-year-old pleaded guilty to driving with excess alcohol when he appeared before South East Suffolk Magistrates Court in Ipswich.

He also admitted driving while disqualified, having no insurance, driving without a valid licence, and resisting arrest.

Bodorin was caught in Church Lane, Little Stonham at around 10.30pm on December 23.

His red Vauxhall Astra had been seen driving along the A140 before turning off at Little Stonham.

Bodorin was seen by a member of the public to leaving his car in the road and appeared to be staggering when he walked off.

Police were called and a subsequent breath test showed he had 93 microgrammes of alcohol in 100 millilitres of breath. The legal limit is 35 mcgs.

In addition to his jail term Bodorin was banned from driving for three years.

John Pugh, of Macauley Avenue, Great Shelford, Cambridgeshire, was also imprisoned for 12 weeks.

Pugh was stopped in his black Audi A3 on the B1119 at Saxtead, near Woodbridge, at 12.30am on December 24.

A breath test showed he had 82mcgs of alcohol in 100mls of breath.

The 48-year-old pleaded guilty to driving while disqualified, drink-driving, and having no licence or insurance.

He was also banned from driving for three years

Meanwhile, Marius Muzikevicius, of London Road, Brandon, was disqualified from driving for 18 months after admitting drink-driving on the A11 at Barton Mills.

The 27-year-old was also fined £200, and ordered to pay £55 costs and a £20 victim surcharge.

He recorded a reading of 67mcgs in 100mls of breath after being caught at 1.40am on Christmas Eve.
